:bye: hello once more

Finally couldn't sell the car in Vladivostok so came all the way back to Spain, but this time a straighter line. Total 40,000 km. Kitesurfed on the Hel Peninsula in Poland, the place is crazy, more packed than Tarifa, but good wind and ppl stay kitesurfing after dark.

Here is a video of a cool spot in Kyrgyzstan :lol:

New episode through Bulgaria and Turkey, in case somebody is interested. No kitesurfing in this one, coming in future edits.

I think I just got an erection just scrolling through this post. As a father of two who has never done anything remotely like that and now is in his mid forties, I salute you!

hahah that is a nice compliment! Didn't see this before.

My hard drive died and I managed to save some videos so I continued editing a bit. This was in Dagestan, was worried about it a bit honestly due to all the negative press, and was a bit of a detour from the planned path, but finally went and was glad I did. Nice kite spot as well!

Man,

that is fantastic! I actually know a few Russians and work with them. One watched the vid and he says: "Caucasus even very differs from Russia"

It's definitely different World, sooooo far from something like Australia. Or Tarifa :)

Would be great to have subtitles tho.

Pozdrav
